2019 round-up and some 2020 news from Rob
A massive thanks to all you amazing folk who have supported or promoted live music throughout 2019. And a big thank you to everyone who has come out and supported Zoe, myself, and the band.
So many highlights from this year, too many to mention for fear of leaving someone out. One significant event was a super productive and fun recording session at the very fine Superfly studios, where we recorded the material for what will be the band’s 6th studio album. We’re calling the album CHAMELEON because of the wide musical ground we cover during the course of twelve brand new original songs… can’t wait for you all to hear it.
I would like to give a shout out to the new trend of presenting music ‘LIVE in the lounge’. Music will always find a way to flourish and reach people! My particular experience in 2019 was via the amazing Alan Bates and the underground music club team… I love to play in that ‘hear a pin drop’ setting.
As for next year, we’ll be touring hard as always, reaching all corners of the land in support of the new album. Here are a few highlights for the first half of 2020:
